Technique Tuesday

Recently, Sonia did a Norah Gaughan hat class. When she showed me her sample, I was very impressed with the cast one edge. It looked like a tubular cast on, but it wasn’t. I’ve said before wI love the tubular cast on but sometimes it can be a pain to work, and can be slightly tight. So, when Sonia told me this was a knitted on cast on, I was intrigued. It turns out a knitted on cast on can be done using knits and purls, and it gives a very nice edge.


That's the edge of a hat, in case it wasn't clear
The other nice thing about this technique is, unlike the long tail cast on, I can still work it, even with my broken finger. So that’s a win – it’s pretty and I can actually work it in my current state.
